After taking the morning train from Ollantaytambo and a bus transfer in Aguas Callentes, we wound our way higher into the mountains and the cloud layer and reached Machu Picchu, and yes, with the exception of the selfie-taking crowds, it was so worth the trip to stand over this spectacular location. It was also at this point in my nine-day Peru trip with my son that I was grateful to have brought with me only a lightweight, minimal X70. With all the walking, hiking, and climbing, my legs were having difficulty supporting my own body weight, let alone a bag full of gear.
